i just looked at what other people were running at. at 32 there is a warning light in the dashboard.

What other people? Every vehicle has it's own specifications, and that depends on the suspension package, tire package, etc. You need to set it to the proper inflation. And don't use the gauge on the bicycle pump, it is no where near accurate enough. Buy a tire gauge and keep it in the car.

Now here's an idea....

Just send Melody a round-trip ticket and she'll come out and change it for you. She only charges $50 (Canadian) per hour, including travel time.

Consider it an educational experience.

And, that's why God invented AAA.

God invented AAA (CAA here) because people are too lazy to learn how to do basic things like change a flat tire. And they are too lazy to figure out how to call a tow truck on their own.

The amount of money people spend on AAA for "just in case" is absurd. I haven't had a flat tire in 10 years, and 10 years ago when I did have a flat tire, I put the spare tire on myself and drove home.

I concur. Unfortunately, my arthritis does not.

It's a **** to get old.

Don't forget, that sort of ignorance keeps you in business :D It's job security.

Some people just don't WANT to.

It's really not that expensive. I think it's like $90 a year. That's worth it to me.

So that link is to a forum....

Look at the door sticker to see what tire pressures the alignment is set up for. If you think the tires are different, then compare the tire size listed on the sticker to what the tires on the car are.

It sounds like they are probably supposed to be at 36 psi, which is common for low profile tires. Run the pressure too high and you will wear the tires out prematurely, you will also encounter hydroplaning issues - which can lead to you destroying your car and possibly your life.

Physically incapable is a totally different story. A 16 year old kid is physically capable of changing a flat tire.

That sort of ignorance makes my job a lot harder. The smart people keep their vehicles maintained, the stupid people do not. And then they whine and complain when I tell them that they have to spend money to keep their vehicle on the road.

Pay me now or pay me later. Guaranteed, later will cost you more.
